add_early_randomness() is called every time a new rng backend is added
and every time it is set as the current rng provider.

add_early_randomness() is called from functions locking rng_mutex,
and if it hangs all the hw_random framework hangs: we can't read sysfs,
add or remove a backend.

This patch moves add_early_randomness() out of the rng_mutex zone.
It only needs the reading_mutex.

Notes:
    v2: in hwrng_register, take rng->ref only if rng is the new current_rng

Please rebase your patch on top of the cryptodev tree, i.e., make
this an incremental patch with a Fixes header.

This v2 applied on the linux-next with reverted v1 fixes my issue.
